Arrowtown’s surprises at every corner with new activities, restaurants, cafes and accommodation options. You don’t have to dig far in this sophisticated, yet quaint village to find why this charming town oozes heritage whether the newly restored miner’s cottages, the latest exhibit at the Lakes District Museum or the magnificent trails. Arrowtown is renowned for its café and restaurant culture. Whether fine dining, or enjoying a casual pizza or pie, there are delicious options for every budget and time span. Boutique beers and local wines are just some of the beverages on offer. Arrowtown’s tree lined streets, shops and cafes housed in original buildings and its proximity to walking /cycling tracks, vineyards, golf courses and ski fields, make it a must visit destination. Arrowtown sits only 20 minutes from Queenstown and a mere 15 minutes from Queenstown airport.

Lovely to stroll through the main 2-3 streets, but a lot of the charm is over run by tourist traps and prices a bit steep for food. Go in with an agenda- know where You want to visit. Parking is free all day at the...More

Way better than most of Queenstown. Great to stroll and shop in sun. Very cute buildings. Lovely but frozen down by the river. Must visit.

We visited Arrowtown while staying in Queenstown. It’s a quick, easy drive in the Otaga wine region. We were lucky enough to hit the peak fall color and it was gorgeous! The quaint town has something for everyone - jewelry stores, clothing shops, restaurants, souvenir...More

Arrowtown village feels like you have stepped back 100 years in time. The main street is lined with boutique shops and eateries. Make sure to stop by Terra Mia for lunch if there.

Visited Arrowtown during our recent visit to NZ. Reminded us a lot of Bendigo and Ballarat on a non Commercial scale. Great visit.
